Description Suggest change

4 steep, outstanding pitches up near perfect westside rock! almost even mix of face and crack. grades are my guess

P1 - 10d - obvious splitter (10a) with crux face climbing past two bolts to get to the anchor which is one bolt and gear. shorter pitch

P2 - 11b - harder version of pitch 1. Steep 5.10 crack climbing (loose block wouldn't trundle) leads to 2 bolt face climbing crux. 2 bolt anchor under a roof.

p3 - 11b - Traverse delicately out right until you can get some thin gear in a shallow corner. Mantle up and clip the first bolt. kinda spooky. needs a bolt there imo. Steep face climbing on mostly good but spaced holds leads past ten bolts or so, generally up and left, to a two bolt anchor on a sweet ledge. Pumpy. One of the best granite face pitches ever

P4 - 11a - Easy but runout climbing up the arete leads to a few cracks that take gear. Once the arete steepens, bolts start showing up. Steep and sustained to the top in a spectacular position. 2 bolt anchor

P5 - 5.8 - Alpiney ridge climbing leads to the next higher summit, from which you can unrope.

Descent - Easily walk off the backside backdown to the saddle in the ridge and your packs.

Protection Suggest change

Singles tiny -> .4 doubles .5->2 single #3. 10 quickdraws + 4 alpine draws. micro nuts useful/mandatory for the mantle move getting to the first bolt on P3.
